Has anybody ever really looked into the websites
Of the so-called terrorist cells? I just wonder where they really originate from, and who is behind them. Terrorists or the "good ol boys."

1. too true
I mean, to have a website you have to register a URL

can't they ask register.com their billing address?

2. My bet is they use forums.
My cousin, who's in the intell. field, has a job of monitoring Arabic website for "chatter." The only thing he's been able to disclose to me is that he checks the forums about as much as we check DU.

4. i had the same thought and decided to try to find out for myself
http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.ph...

i took the topic of this thread "Al-Khansa" and "The Women's Media Bureau in the Arabian Peninsula" and used google to try to find the original source for this information and it (to me) leads straight to the same people that fabricated the reasons for the war on iraq. i.e. Italian military intelligence and the office of special plans in the pentagon

7. Google doesn't really tell you much though, here's why (or how)
Edited on Thu Jul-07-05 04:15 PM by Zensea
A few years ago I was working at a law firm as a temp that was involved in the writing of contracts for oil pipelines related to the Caspian Sea. I got curious about it for my own knowledge, so I typed the three key regions involved that were on the first page of the contract into google. I got something like 16000 links found.
Then I typed the name of the law firm I was temping at into the search within results feature for those links. I got ZERO links, even though I knew for a fact that this law firm was involved in the project because I had seen the contract with my own eyes.

This proved to me that there is a lot that goes on behind the scenes that does not show up on google -- something I already knew, but this was a particularly graphic illustration of it.

8. true,true,but short of setting up my own newspaper
Edited on Thu Jul-07-05 05:33 PM by Monkie
google is the best option for quickly/loosely testing a hypothesis from commonly available sources, and to illustrate a point.
but it,like the cooperate media, is not a substitute for real investigative journalism or research.
dont forget though, this being a forum on the internet, brilliant research and insane conspiracy theories get treated with the same err "respect" by most posters :)

5. Padilla can't see his family or an attorney because he looked at the wrong
website.

6. The ones I've heard of maybe about 5 - were not registered or
were set up in any Arab country. Some in Europe and a couple in the US.
